Thanks to everyone who voted in the misery poll, which asked: what do you want to read about?
The results above show that spell rotation and gear are of moderate interest, so I'll try and write some more about those.
'Other' was also a popular choice, and of the suggestions proffered, pvp and teletubbies garnered the most votes. I must confess to a general feeling of trepidation: neither are subjects in which I am well versed. Does this mean we shall see Merlot venturing into arenas any time soon? Or calling in sick from work to catch the kids' tv slot? I'll leave you in suspense...
There'll be another misery poll when I can think of something interesting to ask you.
